NEW RAILROADS.-  The Lake Bennett and Chilcat  Railway Eiils  Approved   by   the   Local  Legislature ���- Prospects   of    Early  '     Construction ��� Backed     by  Plenty of Money. t,  The following telegram received  this week from our local member is  self explanatory: ' -  ���'The third reading "of the Chilcal and Ivlahini Railway Bill, also  the Bennett Railway Co. Bill have  both passed the House and now  await the consent of the Lieut.-  Governor.       ' J.  Stahlks." '  Victoria, B.C., April 24th, 1901.  The Lake Bennett Railway most  interests us.in Atlin, and it is grati-,  fying to know that the charter has  been granted, particularly so, when,  the company wiU'almostimmediatey  commence construction . and push'  the road through lo completion. It  is rather a gigantic piece oi engineering work, when it is remembered,  that a tunnel is proposed to be  driven through the Chilcoot summit, and this alone will take many  months. -"However,-worse obstacles  than that in railroading have been  surmounied, and as there are  brains, energy and money at the  back or' the enterprise, we may look  for material developments in the  near fulure.  This railroad, as far as this Province is concerned, will run from .a  point on the Dyea river to Lake  Bennett: thence to the 60th parallel of latitude. Steamers will be  placed on the lakes, in competition  with those of the British-Yukon  Navigation Co., aud in due season  we may look for benefits* accruing  from such competition.  The Chilcat and Klahiui Railway  is contemplated * with the view o.  opening up the Porcupine district,  .md starts from about the junction  of the Chilcat and Klahini rivers;  thence westerly, along -the lattei  river und northerly in the general  direction of the Dalton tiail, clost.  to the British Columbia and Alaska  boundary.

SHAMROCK IL  Dumbarton, April 20. ��� Shamrock II. was successfully launched  this afternoon at Denny's yard iu  the presence of a good crowd of invited guests, newspaper men and  employees. Lady Dufferin christened the new challengei, which  looked extremely spick and span in  its coat of white paint, rimmed with  green, while the manganese bottom  shone like a mirror.  Sir Thomas Lipton   says he ex-  j peels   t'i   build   a   defender, net a  j challenger, next \ ear.  Mr. J. \Y. Macfarlane, whose'appointment as Assistant Census Commissioner was noted some weeks  ago in. .the Claim, has now been  .supplied with all. the necessary documents in connection with his appointment. - His ' district comprises  the Atlin, Eennett-Lake and Tes-  lin districts,' 'and at this 'season of  the year he and his assistants will  have earned all thai is coming to  them. Mr. Macfarlane has dispatched two men to Te.-*lin, Glenora  and Telegraph creek, and there is  little likelihood wc will see them  back again , before the ope i g'ot  navigation. We are confident that  Mr. Macfarlan; and hi-, assistants  will perform their work-in a conscientious, and efficient manner, and  we do not fear that such complaints  as have been heard from Vai corner  will be registered*.from this district.  In,, order to obtain . ii census it  must ,be done with- tiie greatest  care as well as despatch, and we  are confident that uuder Air. Macfai-  lant's supervision this .will be accomplished.  We have _ been privileged to examine the different schedules aud  as we will- have to answer the  various questions ourselves we  woukijjsuggest.ihat no obstacle be  placed in the way, particularly as  all assistants, and enumerators are  under oath. not to deyulge the in-  formalim obtained in the carrying  on of their work.

C  DANGEROUS  JOKING  Causes   Rumours   of    Smallpox in Atlin  MINING MACHINERY.  To Be Spread   Abroad.���Caught in  <  '���      Time'And the   Disastrous Effect Counteracted.  Our attention was this week  called to the fact that reports and  rumours of "Small-pox in Atlin"  were beginning to get outside,.and  as we were, well' aware there was  absolutely.no foundation for such  .reports we took upon ourselves to  telegraph Skagway, with the view of  forestalling the arrival of the rep.irt  in that town." The telegram, which  was addressed to the two daily  papers ancl to Mr. Busby, Inspector of Customs, .was as follows :  "Deny positively ���- rumours of  small-pox in Atlin. ' One mild case  of scarlet fever;- patient now convalescent. Authorised by Cold  Commissioner.  "Tiii*: Ati.in Claim."  '   Allin, li. C, April.qylii. 190A'  "' Ou-inqniiy'we are led to the he-j  tie! that the report originated from  ;i "joke" which, was made on a  rather 'credulous individual, who  failed to see it. As bad news, like  lire, travels with ' the wind, when  not immediately suppressed, the  report came back to us off the  trails as a "fact."  Atlin, as a health resort, has few  if any peers in' the country. The  best proof of this is the fact that  there is barely a living for one  doctor, and when it is remembered  that we were without a physician  from November 4th last year till  February 24th of this year, have  " we net cause to feel that Atlin is  . without a peer. There was, a few  weeks ago, a slight epidemic of "la  grippe," the germs of which were  aindoubtedly brought in by people  coming in from the coast towns.  Now, about two weeks ago, the  scarlet fever patient arrived' here  from Seattle. The moment it was  discovered the Health authorities  took steps "to isolate the patient and  all the men with whom he had  been in association. Commissioner  Graham deserves credit for the  active steps he took to prevent the  spread-of the disease, in the erection  of au Isolation Hospital, and the  * housing of the suspects outside of  Fliscoverv, where the disease first  showed itself. The most tjnioious  need,have no fear of the spread of  the disease , as the first case is  convalescing, and the suspects have  spent the necessary lime in quara-i-  tine, so th��t all danger is now at an  end.  An English Company litis Taken  Ovor .the Business of Armstrong1 & Morrison of Vancouver.  By recent   advices , fi\ 111 Vancouver, H. C. we note    the   change   iu  *   m  the ownership of Armstrong' &  Morrison's engineeiing works in  that city, tire business will now be  known as-llie Vancouver Engineering Work's, Ltd. The new company is registered in Liverpool, and  is already considerably increasing  the capacity of the woiks. The old  firm has done quite a large business  in this district, and as" far as we  know no . complaints have been  made by, those who have placed  orders with ' that firm. The  new .'company has an . immense  field in this camp for the 'sale  oL, hydraulic and other mining  machinery, and we have ; every  reason to believe that with their  modern machinery they vvill be in  a position to compete with any of  the large works on the Pacific  coast.  .

DISSOLUTION   OF   PARTNERSHIP.  GRAHAM CREEIC.  News evincs from Graham creek  of what is being clone there now by  the few miners who have faith iu  the creek. The Ronayne brothers  have been busy whipsawing lumber  and have supplied the wants of all  hands, thus avoiding the necessity  of transportation from'Atlin over  difficult trails. Some prospecting  has been done by the discoverers,  but owing to the rise of the water  it was difficult to obtain a s' tisfac-  tory pan. However, what little has  been done shows that coarse gold  is to ,bs found on the lower'ground,  but whether in paying quantities or  not, remains to be seen, ft is expected that pay is to be found on  the discovery and a few adjoining  claims, but on the lower ground,  which is deeper, little can be said.  It is hoped the results with further  prospect work will be satisfactory.  ���RJOCTCIC is hereby {riven that the partner-  fhip heretolore subsisting: between J.  II. Kiivell nnd li. M.
